By getting a gas license! LOL

Remember to tip your waitress! I'll be here all week - Goodnight!

Alright...got it out of my system...here we go:

1. Find out if a conversion kit exists. Answer: Yes it does...in fact it came with it originally. If it had me doing the install, I would have taped the kit to the back of the range.
http://www.fixya.com/support/p106248-kitchenaid_kgsa906pss_gas_kitchen_range/manual-13680/page-7

....and I quote, "IMPORTANT: Your cooktop is factory-set for use with natural gas. If you wish to use L.P. Gas, an L.P. Gas Conversion Kit is included with your new range. Models with the TripleTier Flame Burner will include a TripleTier L.P. Gas Conversion Kit and a kit for standard ranges. See “Installation Instructions” for details on making this conversion.
2. Obtain the kit. This is more difficult than actually doing the conversion. Unless you have a dealer nearby, I'd simply call Kitchenaid directly: (1.800.461.5681) They will either send it to you directly (quite possibly for FREE) or point you in the right direction.
3. The kit will come with instructions, but briefly, here's what you're getting into: The kit will consist of 1-3 orifices. These will reduce the amount of flow going to the burner(s).
Why? Two reasons: a) Propane burns hotter and b) Propane moves quicker than N.G.
You might need: Allan Keys, Screwdrivers, Channel Locks, Adjustable Wrench.
You'll just disassemble the manifold, install the orifice(s), and GO!

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas

GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.

SOURCE: Natural gas to LP converters

Your Tappan dealer can help you with this. You have a good named unit so it shouldn't be a problem. You could also check with your gas company as to where to get the conversion parts.

SOURCE: Need to convert from natural gas to LP. How?

I converted a gas range several years ago, and all that was required was that I had to 'seat' all of the orfices - or tighten them down so that they are completely seated (do not overtighten!). It has been working great for years!

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite 790 hooked up to propane .. is it ok to have it hooked up to propane or is this over for natural gas only?


Kenmore Gas ranges can be used with Natural gas or Lp. They come from the factory set up for Natural gas so if you want to use Lp it needs to be converted by you or your gas company. There are several adjustments that have to be made and some ranges require orifices to be changed. Your installation manual tells how to convert it but if you're not sure about doing it you would be better off the call the gas man.

I have a 48" GE Monogram 4 burner with griddle gas/ duel fuel range (ZDP48N4GD1SS) that was set up for natural gas. I need to convert it to LP but the parts website doesn't show a conversion kit for this...


I just bought a new/used GE mongram natural gas range and need an LP conversion kit. Called GE and found them very UNhelpful. Can this be this hard? The party I called will not take the range back. $3000! I thought I got a great deal and cannot use the range the way it is. I need help too.

Gas stove need to switch to propane


Hi,

Hotpoint supplies the orifices and instructions with each range for converting. It is just that it is hidden, they attach it to the gas regulator. The regulator is near the bottom back typically. Here is a cut out from your use and care manual.

CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting
back to natural gas from LP)
This range leaves the factory set for use with natural
gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion
must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer.
The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found
attached to the range next to the pressure regulator.
Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want
to convert back to natural gas.

Gas range burner flame too high and too yellow.


Did it work OK in that location before the changes?
Sounds like you used Natural gas parts instead of LP.
Lp orifices have smaller holes than Nat.

Converting a range from LP to Natural gas


Yes, it is possible.

You have to get the right orifice's for Natural gas. LP gas orifice has twice the size hole as compared to Natural Gas. Using it without the right orifice will put out way too much gas, and you will burn everything, as well as it will be a fire hazard.

Your local gas company or propane company should be able to get you the right orifice

Please rate this solution.
